I eat very few processed foods – mostly a mix of fresh and cooked whole fruits and vegetables with a few legumes, some soy and whole grains mixed in.
I always figured that fruits and vegetables were loaded with digestive enzymes, yet every single day I battle with heart burn.
I eat a (mostly) whole, plant based diet so an example of a day for me looks like this:
3-4 servings fresh fruit
2-3 servings raw vegetables
3-4 servings cooked (usually steamed or cooked in soups)
1 serving soy (either milk or tofu)
1-2 whole grains or starchy vegetable
1-2 servings legumes
1 serving nut butter or nuts
So why, for the love of god, do I get so much damned heart burn?
